This is on a 2000+ model right?

Even when the "check tire pressure" message is displayed, you can still view the normal selections on the Dic... select the one that says "Tire Pressure Low" and then hold the reset button for longer than you think it should take. It will resent to "tire pressure normal" and then the "check tire pressure" message will be gone.

Assuming...of course...that you've filled your tires to the proper pressure.

the car uses the WSS to determine the Tire pressure warnings. The WSS can determine small differences in the rotation of the tires.

reset the Tire Pressure, put the proper air pressure on the tires, and see what happens

Wheel speed sensor. They're part of the hub, and determines the speed of each wheel for use by ABS, traction control, stability system, and tire pressure.

When reseting the tire pressure alert, you have to hold the reset button in until it says tire pressure normal. One quick push of the button wont do it. It needs time to re calibrate. I went around for days with it on until I figured that out, then thought a self/duh
